CEO & FOUNDER
CEO & Founder
Georgina Jean-Dusseck is a young entrepreneur and alchemist driven to help further beautify the lives others. She founded J.D. Body Treats in 2018 initially as a skincare brand focused on aromatherapy and common skin conditions after she and her children suffered from eczema. Now she is building a self-care empire.
Georgina started out by participating in pop up shops and street fairs where she sold her uniquely formulated skincare products. She quickly gained loyal customers and business relations with her attractive business aesthetic and charismatic persona. Georgina realized that though skincare was a wonderful thing to provide, something much of her clientele really needed was overall care for not just their skin, but the mind and spirit. With this sudden realization, she sought to create an oasis in which her clientele could easily access affordable products geared toward making self-care a daily ritual through aromatherapy, relaxation, and other forms of self maintenance.
In January 2021 Georgina opened the first J.D. Body Treats Boutique & Atelier in her underserved South Bronx, NY community. She along with her amazing team, provides a safe healing space for people to access personal care items such as skincare, crystals, candles, and more while teaching the importance of self-care for the mind, body, and spirit.
Georgina obtained her bachelors degree in Business Management at Monroe College in 2017 and continues to hold a management position at a financial firm.
